Description
Waterborne coatings are defined as coatings in which water is used for adjusting flow behaviour instead of organic solvents. They are subdivided into three groups as latex coatings, water reducible coatings and, emulsion coatings. Waterborne coatings are commonly misnamed as water based coatings. This term is misleading because basis of something is the inherent element that determines its characteristics, whereas water leaves the paint during drying.
